6:18pm
from the past couple of days which is the 60s and 70s. we are going to get close knocking on the 90s door. i'll let you know when coming up. there is a sneak peek. inland communities will get quite warm. that's a view from dublin where it's breezy. you see the trees blowing around a bit looking toward mount diablo where we'll have that race this weekend. gilroy close to 80 today. but you're the exception to the rule. the rule was around 70. livermore 70. sonoma 73. san rafael 68. oakland 66 and san francisco once again another chilly day courtesy of the onshore flow 61 degrees. we are dry in san francisco all the way north to santa rosa all the way down to santa cruz. beautiful weekend at the beach, as well. now, it does rain in may not this may not so far but we have had as much as 4" of rain in may 1925 the wettest may. we are not going to get that wet this may. i don't think we'll see rain for the next 10 days because high pressure is building back in. where it is raining, seattle, portland, olympia, it is
6:19pm
raining even as about an hour north of vegas with some thunderstorms and salt lake city because of the low pressure system that's moving away from us. so what's moving in? it's a big bubble of higher pressure that's sinking air. clouds are formed when the air goes up. you get the opposite of that you're not going to have much cloud cover. so we're not going to see much over the weekend. mainly sunny skies. as high pressure gets closer we'll get warmer especially on sunday and monday where inland communities if you live out there will be out there. close to 90 degrees. say good-bye to that. we are going to get much cooler toward the million of next week as low pressure develops to the north enhancing the onshore flow. temperatures are going up and then down. part of the up process is am to. livermore up to 77 which is average. san jose up to 74. downtown san francisco 65. fremont 69 degrees. oakland and san rafael tomorrow low to mid-70s with sunshine. but look at the jump on sunday and monday. upper 80s inland, upper 70s near the bay and close to 70 at the coastline before we cool off middle of next week. so if you like it cooler, tomorrow is your weekend day, like it warmer i suggest sunday. a little bit of something for
